Then, Tesla's earnings call last week wasn't stellar, but it came with this nugget: Elon Musk says the company is working on batteries that could power your home. Turns out the company is well-placed to innovate outside of electric cars if it can cut costs. Finally: We start our series on the tension between Hollywood and Silicon Valley by looking at "Black Mirror."
